Fall has arrived and school is back in session, but for some of us it is not business as usual. This year we aren’t driving carpool in our pajamas, dropping kids off and driving away, only to realize all three left their lunches in the minivan so we drive back to the school, still in our pajamas, and walk into the school office only to find the perfectly coiffed head of the PTA holding court! For many moms and dads, 2020 has brought on changes not just in their lives, but in the lives of their children, as social distancing and online learning has changed our home lives. We’re spending a lot of time at home together, and the realization that education can happen anywhere, not just at your own kitchen table, makes the idea more palatable—especially when you take an educational journey to Florida for a stay in the Rosemary Beach community! This guide for Rosemary Beach activities will help lead the way.
Science on Rosemary Beach
When you step outside your vacation retreat, the first lesson can be found all around you. The sugary white sands framing the clear emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. White sands are created from a process that began over 20,000 years ago involving quartz, the Appalachian Mountains, and the Apalachicola River. We’d tell you more, but we really don’t want to spoil your fun in learning!
What is Social Studies?
We teachers/parents are being forced out of our comfort zones as we have to learn about topics that have never really been clear to us, with social studies being at the top of the list! The definition of the term describes the study of human society, and doesn’t really help, but you will find the best answer right here in the Rosemary Beach community! Our community was built in 1995 as an answer to the distancing we Americans are facing, and as a way to lower pollution. Built close together with walking trails and bike trails, we don’t need to drive anywhere; the closeness of the community serves to bring us together and bridge that worrisome distance! Obviously, this is a bare bones discussion, and your social studies module will get more involved, but we think you get the idea!
Recess, Lunch, and the Final School Bell
By now, we are sure the picture has become clearer, and we hope that you are getting more excited with each word you read! Recess by the private pool, lunches created in the kitchen of your vacation escape, and the ringing of the final school bell open up the world even further! Reserve your vacation classroom away from school today and discover how education can be entertaining and relaxing as well!
